The Cyclic Category, Tor and Ext Interpretation
- 396 Downloads
Simplicial objects in an arbitrary category C can be described as functors from the category of non-decreasing maps Δ op to C. Similarly one can construct a category, denoted ΔC and called Connes cyclic category, such that a cyclic object in C can be viewed as a functor from ΔC op to C. The cyclic category ΔC was first described by Connes [1983, where it is denoted Λ or ΔK] who showed how it is constructed out of Δ and the finite cyclic groups.
